This function allows to convert a rds file to parquet format.

Two conversions possibilities are offered :

  • Convert to a single parquet file. Argument `path_to_parquet` must then be used;

  • Convert to a partitioned parquet file. Additionnal arguments `partition` and `partitioning` must then be used;

Usage

rds_to_parquet(
  path_to_file,
  path_to_parquet,
  partition = "no",
  compression = "snappy",
  compression_level = NULL,
  ...
)

Arguments

path_to_file

String that indicates the path to the input file (don't forget the extension).

path_to_parquet

String that indicates the path to the directory where the parquet files will be stored.

partition

String ("yes" or "no" - by default) that indicates whether you want to create a partitioned parquet file. If "yes", `"partitioning"` argument must be filled in. In this case, a folder will be created for each modality of the variable filled in `"partitioning"`. Be careful, this argument can not be "yes" if `max_memory` or `max_rows` argument are not NULL.

compression

compression algorithm. Default "snappy".

compression_level

compression level. Meaning depends on compression algorithm.

...

additional format-specific arguments, see arrow::write_parquet() and arrow::write_dataset() for more informations.

Value

A parquet file, invisibly
